beach feet!!

Last month we went to Lyme Regis for the day, It took most of the day to get there as we started out late and I went the wrong way loosing my mum!!lol!! But when we got there we headed straight for the beach, got the kids into swim shorts, and settled ourselves onto the beach. I was over-dressed in my jeans and hadn't expected the glorious sunshine we got but....
I did have my camera!! Somewhere on my travels I read/saw something about taking photos of feet! I thought this was a fab idea and started snapping pics of every ones feet, the kids were not happy to stop mid-walk so I could take a photo, but they humoured their mum! lol The rest of the family thought I was nuts!! I'm just artistic!!!LOL
So here is the resulting LO!! I made this LO for a UKS challenge using the sketch for the challenge, which was a Page Maps sketch.
The PP is a Summer Soiree kit from the C4E store HERE. Chip alpha is from a QVC kit. I tried out a new stitch on this LO chain stitch, I wasn't sure if it would work on card as well as it works on fabric, but it did and I am glad I tried!!
There a few techniques used on this LO, distressing, sewing and doodling. The embellishment below is one I have seen used on a lot of LO's recently, ummmm might try it on the next card I do???!!!!LOL!! The shell is a real shell, picked up from a Cornish beach. I looked for shells at Lyme Regis but only found them in the shops! I did buy some for the kits though!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!!
